Page Numbers for Personal Docs

I'm experimenting with using Amazon personal docs storage to sync sideloaded books across all devices.

I use Calibre to convert my book to MOBI format, then use the Send to Kindle application to store it on the cloud. So I can download it from whatever device I want. It all works perfectly, except for page numbers. Only those stupid locations. Am I doing anything wrong, or is there any way to create personal documents with page numbers?

you have to use calibre with a plugin: count pages, they set a page for your ebook ,and than re-convert your ebook and send to personal document, and you will see the pages.

You will have to send the files to the ereader using Calibre, though. Sending via Send to Kindle won't carry the page numbers file with it.
